Christina El Moussa will play nice with Tarek on air because she has an end goal
Flip or Flop's Christina and Tarek El Moussa make for a winning team on television, which is probably why there have been reports that HGTV is pressuring them to play nice (despite their divorce) or possibly face being sued for breach of contract.
But apparently, the network will have no issues with Christina, because according to In Touch Weekly, she's willing to cooperate in the hopes that in the future she will get her own spinoff show.
"She has been talking to HGTV about her own series without him," a source close to the former couple told the publication. "She told the network she wants a younger, sexier, better-looking costar."
Christina has reportedly set herself big career goals, ones that don't include her ex-husband.
According to the source, Christina has previously told Tarek that she would start her own design show. She reportedly also "fancies herself a single version of Joanna Gaines, one of HGTV's biggest stars thanks to Fixer Upper, her show with husband Chip."
The source adds, "Christina has told Tarek many times that she didn't really ever need him."
HGTV probably doesn't want to lose out on a winning combination, and the success of the show depends largely on the former couple being able to remain civil toward each other, but whether that is going to happen remains to be seen, as a source previously told the publication that things were getting very ugly, adding, "HGTV is livid with Tarek and Christina. Flip or Flop just won't be the same if they're not together, so execs desperately want them to reunite to save the show."
So, if Christina's hopes of getting her own show are ever to come true, she may have to wait until her contract with Flip or Flop is successfully over — or she could find herself in the network's bad books.
